Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 2% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 79.9/100, a mean average of 78.5/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 80.0/100. The standard deviation for this album is 17.1.

Apparently Springsteen inspired by the classic debut album by Suicide for this dark acoustic classic

The album that made me realize there was more to Springsteen than anthem rock, and moved him into the stratosphere of lyric writing masters.

I don't often pay attention to lyrics on an album, but here I had to because Springsteen often paints very deep and beautiful lyrics. Nebraska is such a different album from his previous works - it's more intimate, more personal, more darker and atmospheric. I prefer his other classics like Born to Run, Darkness on the Edge of Town, Tunnel of Love, and Born in the USA to this album, but this is essential listening for any fan of the Boss and of rock music.

Despite Nebraska commonly being touted as "the Springsteen album for people who don't like Springsteen", this particular Springsteen fan ranks it as his best. It might not be quite as repeat-listenable as Born to Run or Darkness, but it's arguably got Bruce's best songwriting; even more than the E Street Band, even more than his guitar playing, the songwriting is what made Bruce the voice of the latter half American 20th century.

I like this album and the dark and mainly acoustic set. Would like to hear the version created with E Street Band although suspect it will not be as powerful

Unlike anything before or since from Bruce (or anyone else for that matter). It's dark, foreboding and depressing. But compelling as hell.

Nothing by Bruce has ever had the same impact on me that Born in the USA did when I was a kid. But this has plenty of quality about it.
